Important Nature-Related Days in July to Learn About

To awaken their curiosity and eventually their conscience to work towards the betterment of the world, talk to your students about Nature Conservation Day and International Tiger Day that are celebrated on 28 & 29 July, respectively. 

The youth of today needs to know on what cost does the ‘development’ stands and should be able to distinguish between actual development from the conglomerate ventures.

World Nature Conservation Day is observed on 28 July every year to raise awareness about the significance of natural resources and encourage people about the practices of protecting natural resources. The year 2020’s theme for World Nature Conservation Day is that a healthy environment is key to a healthy and sustainable society. How true! 

The main objective of celebrating this day is to protect, maintain and conserve the natural resources and habitats. Due to the depletion of natural resources and the imbalance in the ecosystem, people face risks like natural disasters, global warming, various diseases and much more. The solution resides in the preservation of the environment and Mother Nature to protect the various life forms around us.

“Conservation means the wise use of the earth and its resources for the lasting good of men." - Gifford Pinchot, American forester and politician.

International Tiger Day, celebrated on 29th July, comes with the slogan - Their Survival is in our hands - as a reminder of the agreement signed by countries in Saint Petersburg in Russia, named ‘Tiger Summit’ in 2010. This was done to raise awareness about the decreasing tiger population globally. There, the representative countries declared that the tiger-populated countries would make efforts to almost double the tiger population by the year 2022.

Out of around 3,000 left alive, India is a habitat of 75% of total tigers on the earth, the Royal Bengal Tiger being one of the most majestic ones with dangerous chances of extinction.  

“When a man wants to murder a tiger he calls it sport; when a tiger wants to murder him he calls it ferocity.” - George Bernard Shaw, Irish playwright.
